London, UK (PRWEB) December 16, 2009
Burke's Peerage is now accessible on your iPhone. It's available on your computer as well, of course, thanks to a new partnership between Burke's Peerage and Exact Editions. Burke's joins Bloomsbury, Debrett's and Gower amongst others on the Exact Editions digital book and magazine platform.
Individuals and organisations worldwide can now subscribe to individual books or the complete digital "shelf" online with the new Burke's digital service at http://www.exacteditions.com/burkespeerage.
For libraries looking to reach larger audiences with tighter budgets, the Burke's Peerage Shelf presents an affordable and user-friendly way to deliver books online. With the Exact Editions platform, libraries can use existing technology that's already in place, to let users read and search individual reference works or the complete Burke's collection at local library terminals or with the use of a library card on their home PC and, of course, their iPhone!
The Burke's Peerage Shelf includes eight reference works - three editions of Burke's Peerage, Baronetage & Knightage (the latest 107th Edition along with the Great War and Second World War editions) Burke's Irish Family Records, all the latest editions of Burke's Landed Gentry and Burke's Family Index.
How does the service work?
Individuals and organisations can take out a subscription online to individual Burke's titles or the entire Shelf for a year at a time.
Libraries can also subscribe to individual books or the complete Shelf for a year at a time.
When new titles are added to the Burke's Peerage Shelf no extra charge is made.
Daryl Rayner, Managing Director of Exact Editions said: "Exact Editions are delighted to be working with Burke's to deliver individual book titles and the full Burke's Peerage Shelf. The concept was succesfully introduced for UK libraries earlier in the year and it is really encouraging that Burke's have now signed up to deliver content to libraries in the same way. Burke's have also rolled out access to individuals and libraries worldwide."
Mathew Wills, Director, of Burke's said: "The Burke's Peerage Shelf includes eight digital reference works featuring thousands of family histories, over a million named individuals and more than 15,000 pages of content. The Exact Editions platform makes this easily accessible to our customers worldwide in a digital book format that they are comfortable with. Burkes are delighted to partner with Exact Editions."
